The root of the problem is the supposed native English speakers who
invented the meaning and usage to seem trendy and different and then
used their position to make it seem normal usage. So when people such
as yourself use it, you are doing so because of the original. The fault
is theirs, not yours.

I just ask that we do not continue their improper use of English.

(I am sure the same sort of things happen in French, German, Spanish,…
there are "marketing dudes" bound to every language.)
